Does Talcum Powder Cause Cancer?

Evidence dating back to 1971 shows that talc-containing products increase a woman’s chance of developing ovarian cancer when used near the genital region by 33 percent. Research has found that talc particles can travel into a woman’s ovaries, becoming embedded in the ovarian tissue. Since it is difficult for the body to remove these particles, talc remaining in the body can potentially lead to inflammation and the formation of malignant tumors. Knowing this, both the American Cancer Society and the National Cancer Institute have acknowledged talc use near the genitals as a risk factor for the development of cancer.

A jury recently found that in spite of this evidence, Johnson & Johnson refused to add warning labels to their products although they knew the risks their product posed for decades. Johnson & Johnson continues to defend its products in court and deny all liability.

Johnson & Johnson has already been named in hundreds of lawsuits filed by injured women or the families of lost loved ones seeking restitution. In early 2016, a jury awarded $72 million to the family of an Alabama woman who died from ovarian cancer after using talcum powder for years.
